This will render the paper unacceptable and therefore cannot be printed. Please remember that the length of your paper is limited to 14 pages for full papers and 2 pages for poster papers. Figures should be in black and white, limited use of grey-scale. If figures are in color avoid yellow, light blue & green, these will not reproduce in black and white. Use the following guideline and sample files to prepare the camera-ready version.
